Enables Crowdsourcing for Rapid Attention to Building Hazards and Service Repairs

Modo Labs, Inc.

'Our new Facilities module serves as a highly effective, omnipresent "traffic cop” that allows any problem or possible hazard on campus such as a non-working elevator to be quickly reported,' said Andrew Yu, founder and CTO of Modo Labs.

Modo Labs, the leading mobile campus platform provider to universities and enterprises, today unveiled a highly anticipated facilities module at EDUCAUSE. Modo Labs’ modules are the building blocks of Kurogo Mobile Campus, an award-winning, mobile engagement platform designed for clean integration, an exceptional user experience, a high degree of customizability, and fast user deployment.

In a separate announcement also issued today, the company unveiled a new Indoor Maps module. Modo Labs will demonstrate both modules at the EDUCAUSE conference, which kicks off September 30 and goes through October 1. The company will be exhibiting near the Learning Theater on the exhibit floor at booth #367/369.

By leveraging the involvement of community members, the new crowdsource-enabled Facilities module offers powerful functionality to help campuses readily identify and remedy problems related to all aspects of any physical building, from heating and air conditioning adjustments, to repairing bathrooms, broken windows, door locks and desks, to changing light fixtures or cleaning up spilled liquids in a hallway. Modo Labs’ Facilities module also integrates with the newly introduced Indoor Maps module, so users can quickly report the location of hazards and necessary maintenance or make requests.

As with other Kurogo Mobile Campus modules, non-technical users can manage and update the content entirely from Kurogo’s browser-based administrative console. The new module enables users to:

  •     Report a problem related to any part of the campus and submit with a photo,
  •     Crowdsource facility issues such as a broken window or lock,
  •     Provide operational departments with details required to “triage” and prioritize work orders, and
  •     Link from Indoor Maps and other modules to provide a seamless experience for mobile users.

“Our new Facilities module serves as a highly effective, omnipresent “traffic cop” that allows any problem or possible hazard on campus such as a non-working elevator to be quickly reported to trigger a dispatch,” said Andrew Yu, founder and Chief Technical Officer of Modo Labs. “This latest location-specific module can link from our new Indoor Maps module so that users can quickly report problems in a specific location with a simple tap of a button.”

Modo Labs’ Kurogo Mobile Campus platform enables organization to quickly create powerful multi-site and multi-role apps that work seamlessly with any data source on any device. And best of all, this can be achieved in hours by non-developers who have no coding experience. The Facilities module extends the platform’s capabilities and enables organizations to achieve operational efficiencies via mobile applications.

“Modo Labs’ Kurogo Mobile Campus powers the mobile presence of a broad and growing range of institutions, from top universities to Fortune 500 companies”, said Stewart Elliot, CEO of Modo Labs, “and the Facilities module is the latest example of our investment in the platform. It enables both developers and non-developers to create beautiful, robust applications that enhance the user experience and increase user engagement in ways previously only possible by hiring expensive mobile consultants and developers.”
